Its only a few days now until bookmakers will know the fate regarding this years BBC Sports Personality award, Ryan Giggs has the bookies running for cover after a string of bets.
If Giggs takes the prize, the Monday morning mood will be at its worst, with Coral bookmakers alone facing a six figure loss should the Utd veteran win.
Giggs was backed at 200-1 in a Manchester betting shop in the summer, and then the gamble really took off after he was nominated for the final ten, being backed down from 50-1 into a best price of 11/4 second favourite with bet365.
Blue Square make Jenson Button their even money favourite to lift the award, Jessica Ennis comes next in the betting at 11/2 with Betfred then it’s 25/1 bar the rest.
The award ceremony will be take place at the Sheffield Arena on the 13th December.
